Microtek 5600 + TPU to scan negatives and slides?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Does anybody have experience with the new Microtek ScanMaker 5600 Scanner? It sounds promising, 2400x4800 optic resolution, and the price is "lower" -- $169, a separate TPU sells for $80, so for $250 I can get a 2400DPI scanner, much lower than Epson 2450's $400.

I am thinking to use this scanner to scan medium format negatives and slides, and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with it?

Thanks, Wenbiao

My tests show the resolution is overstated.

I would like to know if if will work with glass negatives.
